Yankees Have Still Not Completed MLB Scoring Runs Survivor: 30th Place Showing Shows Epic Fail In 2014

 

You are on the clock New York.  every other team finished Runs Scoring Survivor before the 100 game mark, and you are in jeopardy of running the whole year without plating 8 runs specifically in a game.  We are waiting to close the category up for the year.  You have already secured last place in this deal.  With your payroll on offense at $130 MIL in position players, that would rank you in the top 8 for team salaries alone.  Your hitting has been abysmal - and and EPIC FAIL this year.

The New York Yankees have played 123 games – and still have yet to register exactly 8 runs in any contest this year.  Why is this important?

Because the Bronx Bombers are the 30th team to complete their quest to score precisely 0 – 10 runs in 11 different variations in the MLB.

Atlanta was the 29th club to finish their mission, and they were done this at the 98 games mark – or currently 25 matches (and counting) faster than the “Pinstripers”.

Scoring 8 runs in a game was one of the tougher things to do for all other teams yes, but this Yanks lineup has doled out nearly $130 MIL in player contracts for the 2014 season on their offense alone.

The hitting has been pathetic to say the least.  Joe Girardi should win manager of the year for this team even posting a winning record thus far.

Having 4 major Starting Pitching injuries should spell doom for any club, however that hasn’t been the problem with this squad.

Acquired Pitcher Brandon McCarthy, Shane Greene, David Phelps, Chase Whitley, Chris Capuano have peace-mealed a solid effort for the Starting Rotation.

It has been the 1 – 9 batters that have caused this franchise to struggle this campaign.

i won’t get into this that much more – as that is saved for another blog, but this team has 39 chances left to come up with 8 runs on the nose in a game this year – or this little category of mine will be left unfinished this season.

329 other variations have been authored it is time for New York to quit messing around, and get its act together.

MLB Survivor 2014 – RULES

 

This should turn out to be quite fun.  A lot of gambling establishments have this sort of deal, and it will be fun to see the results.

 

What Runs Survivor is, a MLB team scoring 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.

 

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations.  We are going to keep tracking this category – until all 30 MLB clubs are finished this season!

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at http://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
